Yachts and Hollywood might go together like peanut butter and jelly. Nowhere is the combination of luxury boats on the silver screen more cliché than in a James Bond film – and the superyacht featured in “Skyfall” is the latest Hollywood-featured vessel to hit the resale market.
Regina, a 183-foot schooner, is on the market, according to the brokerage Engel & Völkers Yachting. Boaters who want to experience a slice of James Bond lore can purchase the superyacht for a princely sum of $9.26 million (8.85 million Euros).
Med Yachts built Regina in 2011, but this is not the first time she is on the resale market. A recent report in Forbes stated the superyacht sold for 11 million Euros in 2012 (about $14 million at the time).
Regina, like most actors on camera or stage, had a fictitious character name in “Skyfall” – she was The Chimera. Her brief time on screen featured an interaction between Daniel Craig (James Bond) and Bérénice Marlohe (Sévérine). Naming Regina as The Chimera helped inspire Marlohe’s character, according to IMDb.com.
“The name of the boat that Bond and Sévérine journey on in the film is called The Chimera, which is from the Greek Mythology and is what co-inspired the Sévérine character,” the IMDb.com page for “Skyfall” stated.
The superyacht itself has many bells and whistles, including an interior made of mahogany and onyx. Regina’s cruising speed is 12 knots and can accommodate 12 guests.
